The Adventures of Mr Toad
The adventures of Mr Toad is in rehearsal! This joyful, funny and very “toe tapping”, family musical is our next production. The show will be something of a departure from tradition in that we will have our first night on Wednesday 22nd August and all seats will be just £6.00. After that they go up to £12.00, £8.00 and £6.00 for under 12’s. There is a family ticket available at £28.00 which is a 2 + 2, saving £4.00.
The show will run all that week until the Saturday 25th when there will also be a matinee at 1400. The evening show will start at 1930.
So far, the rehearsals have proved to be very exciting with cast members grasping the music and enjoying singing the songs.
The chorus parts consisting of woodland animals and weasels will be auditioned on Wednesday 6th June in the Green Room.
The show has several new features. One is, we are giving 50% of the profits to a charity called “Help Jaydon Walk”. Jaydon is 6, lives in Bodmin and needs an expensive operation in the US of A. Two, we intend to tour the show after the Town Hall run in September. Three, we will use the tour to try and attract more members with a pitch to the audience right after the show.
We now need back stage staff and of course those all-important chorus members. Hopefully some of our LYT members will fill those roles and we will then have a very exciting, young and enthusiastic cast for what we think will be a fantastic show, to watch, to be a part of and to be a credit to LADS.
